    Please attend to honor this marine’s service to our nation.


    It was a perfect cool and sunny Texas winter day to honor Mr. Timothy “Pat” Pugh. Among the twelve PGR who stood the flag line today was a first time rider, Robert, from Bastrop. We also welcomed Howard and Teresa, two PGR who recently relocated to Bastrop from the Spokane, WA area.

    Thanks to Max for bringing the flags to honor his fellow Marine.

    Mrs. Pugh walked our flag line thanking us for honoring her husband. It was our privilege to be there.

    RIP, SGT Pugh. May God’s comfort be upon the family and friends you left behind.
